Abstract

A matter of time: Two quantitative assays are presented that require only measurements of time and the ability to see and/or count to quantify the presence of a specific analyte. The strategies rely on specific changes in wetting properties of paper when a hydrophobic detection reagent (compound 1) reacts with a desired analyte to produce hydrophilic products. This change in wetting properties enables selective and quantitative detection of the analyte.
